Summary

Statistics Canada 5 2006 Aboriginal Population Profile for Timmins Introduction This report examines the demographic and socio-economic characteristics of the Aboriginal population living in the census agglomeration (CA) of Timmins1. [...] By way of comparison, Toronto had the largest Aboriginal population (26,575) of any city in Ontario, and Kenora had the largest concentration of Aboriginal people of any city in Ontario (16%). [...] In 2006, the median age3 of the Aboriginal population in Timmins was 31.0 years, compared to 40.1 years for the non-Aboriginal population. [...] The opposite was true for young women with 54% of Aboriginal women aged 15 to 24 attending school compared to 64% of non-Aboriginal women in the same age group (see table 3 in the appendix). [...] In 2006, one-quarter (26%) of Aboriginal men and more than one-third (36%) of Aboriginal women 25 to 64 years of age had less than a high school education, compared to 22% of non-Aboriginal men and 21% of non- Aboriginal women in this same age group.
